Hi,
As Jim said, plus there appears to be no Cam Locks either.

It looks pretty good. There's not much to go wrong with that vintage.
Cheers,

I have the same lathe minus the dust extractor part. It is a good machine and has not missed a beat. I got mine with all sorts of attachments when Sunshine Technical school closed down.

Looks to be a good buy if the price stays down.

It is basicly a early version MC908

I paid $850 USD for my rusty short bed version of that lathe, and do not feel the least bit abused.

Wonderful lathe!

I checked ebay last night and it was at $550ish. Assuming everything working, that is a good buy. There were also enough chisels to get one started. All you would need is a grinder.

Considering what $900 buys in new lathes today, the Woodfast is a steal.

Yes. If I didn't have one already I would have gone for it. Wonder if it was someone on these forums that got it?
Cheers,
